  1. Wow, you read a lot of 5 star reads last year! And aaaah The Fixer was one of my favorite reads of the year too, as was The Fill-In Boyfriend (literally the best prom read ever). I think my favorite book of 2015, however, would be ACOTAR. I love it so much. Let's hope that 2016 is filled with even better books haha.
